I like this plant very much but have read that it's small root
system encourages the use of fine grained gravel and wonder
if 2-3mm gravel is to large to make rooting easy.

I have also wondered if introducing 1-2mm gravel as a substrate
produces an overly anoxic subtrate?

Do you have any opinions on these?
